I want to extend my heartfelt thank-you to the voters and residents of House District 33.
Since I filed for public office in January, you have been gracious, courteous, sincere, welcoming, forthright and honest with me.
You answered your doors when I knocked, answered your phones when I called, read the mail I sent you, visited me at tables I set up all over the county, sent me e-mails keeping me updated on your concerns, put signs in your yards and donated your time and money to make that all possible.
Most of all, on Election Day, you voted me in to be your representative to Helena.
Now it is my sincerest desire to make you glad that you did. With your continuing input into what issues are important to you and what you would like to see done about them, I will be able to make decisions and votes you are proud of and that will accomplish what you want done in 2011.
I will answer e-mail now and through the session at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As soon as I have finalized plans in Helena, I will provide you with a postal address and a contact phone number. I will also try to establish a means to regularly update you on upcoming votes and debates so you can provide me with information and concerns you have.
I look forward to being your representative in Helena, and I look forward to getting to know you all better as the session progresses. I value your knowledge and wisdom. Please continue to share it with me. Thank you all again for your votes of confidence. It is my pleasure to serve you.
